Jets re-signed WR Kenbrell Thompkins to a one-year, $1.67 million contract.
Thompkins was a restricted free agent tendered at the original-round level. The ex-Pat caught 17 passes last season, playing 285 snaps. We wouldn't consider it a given that he keeps his place on the 53-man roster. Mar 14 - 4:10 PM

Jets extended an original-round tender to restricted free agent WR Kenbrell Thompkins.

The low tender is worth $1.67 million. With Devin Smith hurt and Jeremy Kerley in the dog house, Thompkins was surprisingly involved in the offense after being signed off the practice squad in October. He should compete for a role behind Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker.
Mar 9 - 8:13 PM

Jets WR Kenbrell Thompkins was held catch-less on four targets in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Bills.

Only playing a lot due to injuries to Devin Smith and Jeremy Kerley, Thompkins committed a drop against the Bills and continued to be plagued by bone-headed mental mistakes. 27-year-old Thompkins managed a 17-165-0 receiving line this season as a little used role player. He will return in 2016 to compete for a roster spot and perhaps a role in four-wide sets.
Jan 3 - 4:40 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Jets WR Kenbrell Thompkins did not suffer "a major injury" Week 16 against the Patriots.

It appeared Thompkins suffered a serious injury when he crumpled to the ground without contact. It is still unclear what injury Thompkins suffered, but the Jets called it a calf injury. Thompkins' availability moving forward is still uncertain.

Jets WR Kenbrell Thompkins was forced from New York's Week 16 game against the Patriots with a left leg injury.

It was a non-contact injury for Thompkins, who crumpled to the ground mid-job. For now, the Jets are calling it a "calf" ailment. It had the looks of a knee issue, but could also be an Achilles'. Whatever it is, it looked to be a season-ender. Operating as a deep threat, Thompkins had caught 4-of-9 targets for 27 yards before departing.

Jets WR Kenbrell Thompkins caught 2-of-5 targets for 50 yards in Saturday night's Week 15 win over Dallas.

Thompkins made the most crucial play of the game when he appeared to catch Cowboys LCB Byron Jones peeking in the backfield and got wide open for a 43-yard fourth-quarter reception, setting up Randy Bullock's game-winning field goal. Thompkins remains a low-volume role player in the Jets' offense as the No. 4 wideout behind Brandon Marshall, Eric Decker, and Quincy Enunwa, with Bilal Powell also squarely in the mix for targets.

Kenbrell Thompkins caught all four of his targets for 45 yards in the Jets' Week 9 win over the Jaguars.

Most of his yards came on a 38-yard catch in the fourth quarter with the Jaguars playing a Cover 2 scheme. Thompkins has reeled in 10 catches for 86 yards since coming off the practice squad last week. The former Patriot and Raider still isn’t close to being a fantasy option.

Kenbrell Thompkins caught 6-of-7 targets for 41 yards Week 8 against the Raiders.

Activated off the practice squad last week, Thompkins made the most of his snaps against Oakland. He could continue to see snaps with Devin Smith (ankle) hurt and Quincy Enunwa suspended, but he is unlikely to see consistent targets behind Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker.
Sun, Nov 1, 2015 07:57:00 PM

Jets signed WR Kenbrell Thompkins off their practice squad.

With Quincy Enunwa suspended four games, the Jets had an open roster spot. Enunwa is purely a blocking receiver. Thompkins will serve as depth out wide.

Patriots signed WR Kenbrell Thompkins to the practice squad.

Thompkins caught 32 passes for 466 yards and four scores as an undrafted rookie for the Pats in 2013, but his development quickly stalled. He'll be a known quantity as a deep threat for the Pats, one who could get the call to the 53-man roster in relatively short order.
Sun, Sep 6, 2015 02:40:00 PM

Raiders waived WR Kenbrell Thompkins.

The former Patriots standout undrafted rookie from 2013 caught just 4-of-11 targets this preseason for 27 scoreless yards. He also dropped two passes. The Raiders have a ton of No. 3/4 receivers behind Amari Cooper, and Thompkins is one of the odd ones out. Neither big nor fast, Thompkins is a possession-type.

Kenbrell Thompkins caught one pass for two yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss at Denver.

Waiver by the Patriots on October, the Raiders claimed Thompkins. He peaked as the No. 3 wideout behind James Jones and Andre Holmes, but was mostly a rotational sub. Thompkins is under contract for just $585,000 in 2015 if the new Raiders regime wishes to keep him on board. Expect a training camp battle with the likes of Brice Butler.
Sun, Dec 28, 2014 08:54:00 PM

Kenbrell Thompkins caught five passes for 90 yards in the Raiders' Week 16 win over the Bills.

He saw a team-high seven targets. Thompkins' big gain was a 50-yard catch deep down the middle in Aaron Williams' coverage. He was tackled at the four-yard line, and James Jones secured a three-yard touchdown a couple plays later. Thompkins is the No. 3 receiver behind Jones and Andre Holmes, but the Raiders throw the ball a ton. Oakland will head to Denver for the Week 17 finale.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 08:05:00 PM

Kenbrell Thompkins secured 2-of-3 targets for 47 yards in the Raiders' Week 11 loss to San Diego.

Pathetically, Thompkins led the Raiders in receiving on a day where the offense was putrid, as usual. Thompkins is a sub-package receiver in Oakland's offense, behind James Jones and Andre Holmes. He has no re-draft value.
Sun, Nov 16, 2014 08:12:00 PM

Kenbrell Thompkins had one catch for two yards in Week 9.

He saw two targets. The Raiders' third receiver has no fantasy value.
